stevens and three other americans were killed in the september 11th attack in benghazi and molly henneberg is following the story live in washington what happens next. >> she has her supporters including the president saying she's done extraordinary work at the united nations and providing the best knowledge that the administration had at the time. and john kerry, democratic chairman of the foreign relations committee says she's a quote enormously capable person, but republican congressman peter king is it not convinced. he wants to know why five days after the attack that killed ambassador chris stevens and three others, ambassador rice stated publicly on several talk shows it was a spontaneous attack that grew out of an anti-muslim video when there was evidence it was a coordinated terror attack. >> ambassador rice should resign and we should investigate how high up this went and if the administration would voluntarily come forward and why they gave out this false information when they had to know there was so much else out there and yet, they wanted to rule out terrorism from the start.
? steven yates is former deputy assistant for national security affairs. great to see you. what are the chances that iran would actually capitulate to western demands by suspending the production of 20% uranium if you spin it a bit more could be used to make a nuclear bomb? >> gregg, i'm afraid what it sounds like the pieces of deal that were reported by the "new york times," basically the leftovers have more than ten years of negotiations with europe and united states and the u.n. security council. i don't feel there is lot new there. it's been offered and taken back and there is verification problems if you accept the deal. for me i don't see much of a change. if they are facing a great deal of pressure, there is a strategic choice do you make a deal with crumbling regime or do you have to have a strategy to see beyond the regime. >> gregg: iranians have 18, 20 sites, those are ones we know about and bunch under ground. a lot of this could still be hidden from nuclear inspectors. they could continue their uranium enrichment production capacity what would be an elaborate shell
that killed ambassador chris stevens and three others that it was a coordinated terror attack, likely tied to al-qaeda. >>> a statement yesterday by a spokesman for the director of the national intelligence said, the intelligence committee believes at first that this was a spontaneous mob action, and that it was communicated to the obama administration, then later revised to say that it was a, quote, deliberate and organized terrorist attack carried out by extremists. it's unclear, though, when that assessment was revised, because ambassador rice was still describing it as spontaneous five days after the attack. >> molly, thank you. well, governor romney is spending his weekend off the campaign trail and prepping for his first big debate against president obama. the romney campaign says it is expecting some tough barbs from a candidate well versed in presidential debates, but the governor is no spraininger to debates as well, setting expectations high for the first face-off. former new hampshire governor john sununu is joining us now to tell us what governor romney needs to do to make a di
of the united states ambassador chris stevens. and don't be too surprised if foreign policy somehow creeps into this debate tonight. a debate that is expected to focus and supposed to on domestic issues. ♪ leaving my homeland ♪ pling a lone hand ♪ my life begins today ♪ ♪ fly by night away from here ♪ ♪ change my life again ♪ ♪ fly by night, goodbye my dear ♪ ♪ my ship isn't coming ♪ and i just can't pretend oww! ♪ [ male announcer ] careful, you're no longer invisible in a midsize sedan. the volkswagen passat. the 2012 motor trend car of the year. that's the power of german engineering. >> shepard: when president obama and governor romney take the stage behind me in denver tonight it may look a little familiar. organizers say they have been using the same set since 1988. they tell us they have made a few updates over the years but the candidates have no say at all over those changes. it's all up to the nonpartisan commission on presidential debates that runs these things. election officials across the country say they expect more americans to vote absentee this y
the liberal media that trashed leher's performance and thought he was going to be unfair. >> steven colbert called him the most boring man on evening news. that is something what we saw. i have to agree with rick and with ellen. i think he understood that the two men wanted to engage and he stepped out of the way. that was a good thing. >> the lincoln-douglas debates were between lincoln and douglas. there were no moderator. everybody would like to say, that would be a better model. they tried it that th time. now, the media are blaming leher. one wrote last week that the media is part of team. romney is playing against the democratic team and media team and the fact that leher wasn't a tackler he is now getting beat up for it. >> jon: the ratings were huge, 67 million people. they have a way of measuring people how people stay with the program. they stayed with it. leher must have been doing something right. >> again the media was removed from the equation. we got to see the candidates talking. i'm a big twitterer. it was very exciting to be twitter during the debate and watched as people
is a millennial, steven crowder, what is millennial first of all. >> i was using my phone and people my age, probably about early mid 20's, and the general age range, and first range, late 80's, through early 2000's, depends who you ask. >> clayton: we have a new gallup poll out, this is interesting on millenials and how they'll fall in line perhaps for prol, president obama. and for president obama 58% and you framed it this way, that they are selfish and that's why they're going to vote for president obama. why is that? >> sure, most people are selfish, not singling out millennials. we tend to vote in our self-interest and tend to vote the occupy movement for more free crap not based on the constitutional parameters of government, but found principles, but what the government can give them and because they're voting that way, they're doing it wrong. >> clayton: so health care, number one, a lot of people saying in that age range of 26 years old now on their parents' health care plan because of obama care, you think that could be a big factor? >> and the way to buy someone's vote in the s
it clear when she was discussing the act tack that killed ambassador stevens and three other americans that the investigation was still going on. >> arthel: the question is, was it the best information they had, at that time? >> reporter: that's what the obama administration and the state department say. sources tell fox news, intelligence officials knew within one day that it was a coordinated terror attack, likely tied to al-qaeda. a special person for director of national intelligence, says the u.s. is understanding of the event continues to evolve. it went on to stay in a statement: >> reporter: it is unclear when that assessment changed. >> arthel: molly, thank you. >> rick: governor mitt romney slamming the president on foreign policy in his weekly pod cast he blames the president for failing to take a more aggressive roll over cease. >>. >> -- aggressive roll over cease. >> that places our friends and allies at the mercy event dan those who do us harm. in a time of testing an american president must show strong leadership. dangerous world, we can't allow indifference to undermin
is an absolute mess. i think -- i've heard stuart stevens as saying let's focus on the economy. i think stuart stevens is exactly right. americans don't care as much in the polls about foreign policy. but several weeks later after this, i think it's very legitimate now that the press is going in and a couple of weeks have passed since the ambassador's death, now, yes. i mean, he's got a responsibility to talk about how badly the white house bungled this. >> i think he does. and indeed, you know, i think right now, the focus is a little misplaced. the notion that -- i think the white house is pretty credible in saying that they're learning more, that their initial instiblgt -- they didn't know the situation was initially, that they've explained it better as they've done intelligence assessments, but it raises the more fundamental question which is why was the consulate not secure? how was it that security issues, as opposed to their stories afterward, these are american lives at stake in an unstable region, what are the intelligence failures? what were the security failures? those are fundament
that was there. steven briar and antonin scalia and clarence thomas and anthony kennedy. this morning's homily called for the spirit of god to place his blessing on the new year. speaking of the supreme court, a gallup poll shows americans are split in confidence in the judicial branch. when asked, 53% said they have a fair amount of trust. 27% said not very much. only 14% gave their full trust. when it comes to how well the supreme court is doing its job, 49% approve and 40% disapprove. it is likely the last time high-profile cases like health care weighed heavily on the public's view of the court. that ruling on the president's law castigated the nation. the new term could have another round of blockbuster cases, from gay marriage to race-based college entrance policies. we have a current partner of and one of our favorite court watchers, thank you so much for coming in today. >> thanks, shannon. >> shannon: let's start with day 1, tomorrow, involving shell oil company and allegations of human rights abuses in nigeria. >> absolutely. this is an interesting case. have you a real problem. you
for ambassador stevens and met with the families. i think this is republican conspiracy. >> the fbi still isn't in benghazi. >> if you give the media the 47% statement and give the media clint eastwoo eastwood ae offshore accounts people are going to write about them. >> and people know about the economy and as chris pointed out earlier the confidence in the economy and the president's ability to handle the economy he has been surging. >> because the media has been all over that. >> chris: we are not going to focus on immediate bias any longer. when we come back the terror attack that killed four in libya. growing questions about what the president knew and when knew it. en we got married. i had three kids. and she became the full time mother of three. it was soccer, and ballet, and cheerleading, and baseball. those years were crazy. so, as we go into this next phase, you know, a big part of it for us is that there isn't anything on the schedule. droid does. and does it launch apps by voice while learning your voice ? launch cab4me. droid does. keep left at the fork. does it do turn-by-turn n
led up to the death of ambassador chris stevens, two navy seals and a worker. and steve centanni, what's the latest in washington. >> the fbi has yet to enter benghazi because of the dangerous security climate there. senator corker who sits on the foreign relations committee wants to know why, and he fired off a letter to intel chief james clapper, calling the situation bizarre and demanding answers and says in part, 18 days ago, the administration judged it was appropriate for our consulate to be lightly guarded. and what has changed in libya in such a short time. is that even fbi agents and our personnel entered the city. and the u.n. ambassador susan rice who has said a few days after the attack, that it appeared to be a spontaneous uprising and the long video. >> and we have reports now that intelligence people knew within 24 hours that this was a terrorist attack and yet, they sent her out, to say things that were absolutely false and continued to do so. and then, as mccain says the violence in lib rah clicks, with the story and al-qaeda diminished. >> for its part. the administra
: the day after ambassador stevens and three others were killed, president obama gets on the plane and campaign stop in vegas is different from the other 2,002 people who died in afghanistan in the last 11 years. >> bob: you are suggesting we're not at war -- >> eric: he should have stayed home and met with the intel people. >> dana: definition of war in uniform versus the terrorist attack of civilians there is a difference there. andrea, i want your take because senator mccain talked about this strange, bizarre discrepancy between what the administration knew about the intel and what they said to the american people. and now how it was self-evident and trying to muddy the waters. i don't think they will get away with it, especially when it comes to oversight from congress. senator mccain. >> i think it interferes with the depiction that the administration is trying to convey, al-qaeda is on the way. everything is fine in the middle east. >> you think it's political? >> it's certainly political. how else could you trot out, our u.n. ambassador to say this was a spontaneous demonstr
of september 11th, after this had happened, but before he knew that ambassador stevens had been killed, came out, criticized the statement that had come out of the cairo embassy about the -- about the demonstrations there. then got a huge amount of criticism. as the facts began to pile up against obama, the romney campaign stayed somewhat silent, and has still to this day not made a lot of the problems that developed. >> the debate is built entirely around foreign policy. if romney doesn't take advantage of that platform to raise questions, again, poke holes in the president's arguments -- >> greta: why isn't he now? this is coming from the super pac. >> i think the romney campaign thinks it can wait that long, at least some people in the romney campaign, think it can wait, and want to do his foreign policy right before that debate, so there's some bringing together of these arguments. i think the time is now. you had governor romney asked about this last week on his plane. you know, how has the administration handled it? he said, look, it's too early to judge it. that's not the right answer
attack in benghazi. the personal body guard for ambassador christ chris stevens so far away, he had to dash across the compound under gun fire. witnesses say attackers hit all three entrance at the consulate at the same time. they also identified the attackers as members of ansar al-shariah, known islamist militant. those are your headlines. now time to bring in dana perino and finds out the real reason she was sticking out her tongue. >> i'm tired. [ laughter ] >> steve: just like that. >> i was being a brat. >> steve: that's okay. let's talk to you about what the story that the administration has had regarding what gretchen was just talking about with the attacks on our consulate where four americans were murdered. in the beginning they said because of that movie, spontaneous. within 24 hours, they knew that it was terrorism connected perhaps to an al-qaeda affiliate. and we've had mayor rudy guiliani on. we just had lieutenant colonel allen west on the channel. they both say there has been a cover-up on the part of the white house. >> it certainly is very curious that if they kne
stevens and three other americans were killed in that attack. cnn intelligence correspondent suzanne kelly joins me live from washington. did intelligence agencies really not have enough formation, or were they covering up parts, as some are suggesting? >> that's a great question, and i think what we're starting to see now is a little bit behind the curtain, if you will, with the intelligence community coming out with this very unusual statement really about what it knew. although it's not nailing down exactly the timeline. now, you have to remember in those first 24 hours after this attack, things were coming in, they were initial assessments and the intelligence community is basically saying look, guys, we know that initial assessments are sometimes wrong because you just haven't gathered enough information yet. but let me read to you what shawn turner said. he's the director of communications for the office of the director of national intelligence, the president's top intelligence adviser here. as we learn more about the attack, we revised our initial assessment to reflect new informati
. the evolution of what might be the truth of what happened regarding the killing of ambassador chris stevens and three others at the consulate there in libya. now the director of national intelligence is weighing in. is he giving cover to susan rice for the administration's wobbling evolution on the truth? >> we may see how this argument is now about to play out. right? we had a debate on the show a little while ago. fascinating because i was hearing from mark lavine, radio talk show host. argument from the left that this intelligence may have been muddled from the beginning and they were making their way to uncover it this is what the director of national intelligence is now saying it was on us, basically, not the white house. read. this in the intermeet adaftermath there was information that led us to assess that the attack began response stainously following protests earlier that day at our embassy in cairo. we provided that assessment to the white house and men's of congress who used that information to discuss that attack publicly and provide updates as they became available. through th
in benghazi left four americans dead including u.s. ambassador chris stevens. ambassador rice has been accused of lying to protect the white house during five television appearances later that week. she blamed the attack on protesters who were angry about a movie when, in fact, the attack was planned and executed by terrorists with ties to al qaeda. the administration now believes. last night rice tried to clarify in a letter to congress it says, quote: i relied solely and squarely on the information and intelligence community provided to me. a group of republicans led by senator john mccain responded quickly saying either the obama administration is misleading congress and the american people or it is blaming the entire failure on the intelligence community. we go to a fox news alert for you right now. a hook-handed, one-eyed terrorist suspect is on a plane head to the united states to face charges. sounds like a cartoon. abu al masri headed to the united kingdom. they wanted to open a training camp in the hills of oregon. he lost both his hand and an eye back in the early 1990 while waging
